Figure 2b: Woody’s failure to thrive
(delayed onset megacolon)


Woody, failure to thrive
Photo 1:  Shows Woody, a 6-week-old rat, compared with his sibling of 6 weeks. Woody is showing a failure to thrive as result of delayed onset megacolon. His lack of hair is due to genetic double-rexing and is not in any way related to his colon disorder.
